OHA honored in Hawaii Business Magazine’s Top 250
News Release from OHA, October 20, 2016
The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) is honored that it has been recognized by Hawaii Business magazine as one of its top 250 businesses in 2016. This year, the publication ranked OHA as 170 of 250 Hawaii businesses, based on its revenue in 2015.
This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of OHA’s board and staff as we strive to malama (protect) Hawaii’s people, environmental resources, and OHA’s assets towards the cultural perpetuation, lifestyle enhancements and entitlements protection of Native Hawaiians.
It is also a reflection of the sound fiscal management that allows OHA to reinvest its revenue back into the community through grants, scholarships, programs, research, land management and advocacy for its beneficiaries at all levels of government.
Mahalo to Hawaii Business magazine for this honor. For a complete listing of all Top 250 businesses, click here for a link to the story in the September edition of Hawaii Business magazine.
